Aniplex to release Oreimo as a limited edition Blu-Ray!

Yes, also known by its full name, Ore no imouto ga konnani kawaii wake ga nai, will get a US release date close to it's Japanese date. You get all 12 episodes + the OAVs on four Blu-Rays on February 27th for a staggering MSRP of $329.98! While that does seem astronomical for the US, that seems to be about average for Japan. Unfortunately, we are not in Japan, so only the most hardcore of anime fans and those with disposable income will be able to buy this title.
